I hope everyone had a great memorial day weekend.

Now its back to the daily grind of life. lol

I am actually sitting here in the hospital waiting on my dad to come out of surgery. He is in having a heart cath.

We had a cook out over the weekend. I invited a ton of people. Everyone I could think of. Everyone that I used to be friends with... well I still consider them friends but we just really dont hang out anymore.

Most of those people... didn't come to the cook out.  And that made to really think about how much has changed since the last cook out that I had.

It seemed like I had more friends back then. Now I have a small handful of friends- people that I hang out with on a regular basis.

Marriage changes things. Especially friendships. People that I used to hang out with a lot are people I rarely talk to anymore. I am not upset with them- they are not to blame, nor am I. Situations change. People change. Priorities change. Its life.

It is a little saddening that people that I used to tell everything to. That when I went out for a drink, they were the first person I called. That when I had a bad day, I called for comfort. And vice versa. Now? Nada.  I can't even get them to come to a cook out. lol

I am not upset or anything- sad, a little bit yes. But I have learned it is life.  We don't have the same interests anymore. We don't have the same commonalities.  I would still be there for them if needed and if I can, but I also know that I wouldn't be the first person they call.  I would still hang out with them and I still consider them friends... I just know life goes on. Life changes.

I used to love Mondays. 

It was always the first day of the week and I was normally well rested from the weekend. Sunday's were normally my lazy day and I could rest, nap, and recoup from the week.  Lately... that is not the case. 

Just seems lately when it rains it pours...

Monday's I am now always exhausted.  I don't want to get out of bed. And even last night, we were in bed at 8pm, we weren't able to go to sleep till after 10. No one else in the house was tired and no one else wanted to be in bed that early.  

Monday's are also my LONG days. I work both jobs on Mondays. So I go from one, get kids off the bus, change and head to the next. So I am gone from 7am to 8:30pm. It's exhausting.  

Today is no different... Only busier!!  My dad has a doctor's appointment at 2 that he really wants me to go with him to...so I told him I would. So I have to leave one job early, got my husband to pick the kids up from the bus, go to the doc appt with my dad, run home and change, and then head to job #2.  

To top everything off... I was supposed to have a phone interview today at 10am. I got a call from my bank at 9:55(tho i thought it was the interview-so I answered) and then the interview called- I missed the call trying to get off the phone with the bank, called the lady right back and she was now busy or at least I was told she was busy, so I don't know- I now may have lost that opportunity. Ugh. Frustrated.  Maybe its God keeping me from that job. I don't know.  I just have to have faith about it.  

I know God's got this. I still get frustrated and disappointed at times- its human nature.  

I miss this. Miss blogging all the time. I really need to get back into it.
